Developmental Social Neuroscience and Childhood Brain Insult : Theory and Practice, Hardback Book

Developmental Social Neuroscience and Childhood Brain Insult : Theory and Practice Hardback

Edited by Vicki (Royal Children's Hospital, Victoria, Australia) Anderson, Miriam A. (University of Montreal, Canada) Beauchamp

Description

Synthesizing cutting-edge knowledge from multiple disciplines, this book explores the impact of acquired brain injury and developmental disabilities on children's emerging social skills.

The editors present an innovative framework for understanding how brain processes interact with social development in both typically developing children and clinical populations.

Key issues in assessment are addressed, including ways to measure both social function and brain function using developmentally sound tools.

Balancing theoretical and clinical concerns, the book describes promising interventions for promoting children's adjustment and helping them participate more fully in the social world.

Illustrations include six color plates.
